Mail Assistance Programs

Mail Assistance Programs provide families and individuals experiencing homelessness or those who do not have a stable mailing address with a mailing address they can use when applying for benefits such as supplementary food assistance (SNAP/food stamps), public assistance, disability, and social security income, medications, and other vital services that require a permanent address. It also allows those without homes to provide a private – non-shelter – address to potential employers when seeking a job.
